Alexandre Desplat looks for his Oscar

Music always plays a big role in the Oscars, from the staged numbers and live performers to the nominees. One of this year’s contenders is French composer Alexandre Desplat, who’s been nominated six times but has yet to take home a statue. He’s a prolific composer, having scored films like Fantastic Mr. Fox and this year’s Argo. This week on Global Notes, Morning Shift and Radio M host Tony Sarabia joins Worldview to take a look at some of Desplat’s work.
